CADA co-founders, Laura Valendza and Wendy Duke, will be offering four teacher training sessions over the next year for those who are interested in learning their methods and techniques for working with youth and adults on the autism spectrum and other special needs populations. Each 6 hour workshop will focus on a specific subject. Please note we have changed the start date for the first workshop to Dec 15 so that our staff may attend VSA Intersections Regional conference on Dec 8.

March 16 2019: Physical acting for body language understanding and communication
June 22 2019: Improv for Autism/Special Needs

Workshops will begin at 9 AM and end at 4 PM with a full hour lunch break between sessions. CADA students and volunteers will be on hand to assist with the training. Ample hand-outs will be available for participants to take home. CEUs will be made available.
